I had said in the weeks previously, while working on changing my back swing pivot to shorten it and produce a shallower plane on the down swing, that I was hitting baby draw with it due to the changes I was making.
I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golffacility in Toronto to show how the MCS Golf Swing model allowed me to drive the ball well upwards of 300 yard and to also create a positive Attack Angle to maximize drive distance.
Out of the scenarios I pointed out yesterday during the final round of the Open Championship, I completely overlooked one possibility, because he was playing such a quiet and overshadowed-by-his-playing-partner-Tiger-Woods round of golf.
I don’t always take the SwingRite out of the bag during my range sessions, but when I was investigating the John Daly/Mike Dunaway leverage aspect yesterday, I made sure to take it with me because of the “feel” I had swinging it over the weekend.
I took some cuts today after having worked on the “feel” of that top position where I could get more body leverage, akin to the Mike Dunaway/John Daly type of move.
I’d have to say that, even on the first day, I definitely improved my leverage. I am almost never in the 170s mph ball speed when I am working on a swing move, but today, I hit up to 178 mph ball speed.
As you all know, I love looking at mechanics, and when I see something interesting, I see if I can break it down and duplicate it myself.
I’ve been working on something that has to do with leveraging, and that’s using the torso to create the leverage to produce speed rather than trying to jump out of my shoes with a twisting or turning motion combined with swinging with the arms.
I wanted to get some good-quality slow motion swings for the upcoming video “MCS – Project 2018,” the better to illustrate certain points about the mechanics, of course, but also to get some good position pics.
